Education & Youth Support
Education is acknowledged as one of the most important investments for the future of Australia, and is critical to reducing poverty and inequality. Grants provide support to young people who are at-risk of disengaging or have already disengaged from education due to difficult circumstances. This is often done through programs encouraging school retention and the support of disadvantaged youths through community projects. The Trustees place importance on the equitable distribution of educational resources within disadvantaged communities. Other areas of focus include mental health and suicide prevention within the youth sector, preparing young people for the transition to employment, and support for young people who have been subject to trauma or abuse.
